You know when you have an idea in your head for a while and it takes you forever before you finally have the time to create it? That's what happened with this cardigan. I have had that navy knit and those gold buttons (both from the fabric district) for months now, with the intention of creating a cardigan. But I guess things like pregnancy, giving birth, and an attention demanding toddler sometimes force you into a sewing hiatus.
I purchased this dress a few weeks ago. It was a little "yay you just birthed a human" gift from the hubs. I knew I couldn't wear it until the cardigan was complete, so I morphed myself into a baby whisperer and got both boys to sleep at the same time and pumped this sucker out. I love the feel of this knit. It is a little thicker than a jersey and fantastic quality. It has a little bit of a blazer look to it, which I love. I'm excited to incorporate it into my daily wardrobe. It's a staple piece if I ever saw one.
